Official Battlefield 4 Tablet Commander App Now Live on iOS, Later on Android [Updated: Now on Android]

Command the battlefield from the comfort of your own couch or the busy hustle of your morning bus ride to work. The official Battlefield 4 Tablet Commander has launched and is now available to download for tablet devices.

Launching along side the PlayStation 4 version of Battlefield 4 today, the app will let you command squads and support teammates as you would on the console or PC version of Commander Mode, but from the palm of your hand on any iPad running iOS 6.1 or higher. A Battlelog update announced for Android devices next week will presumably enable the App on on that platform at that time, so hold tight, Android users.

Update 1

A status update on the official Battlefield 4 Facebook page indicates the Android App will be available “later this month”.

Update 2

The Battlefield 4 Tablet Commander App is now live on Android devices. Download it here.

Check it out on the iTunes store right here.

App Description

NOTE: This application requires that you own Battlefield 4™ on at least one platform, and that you have an active soldier at rank 10 or higher on that platform.

Jump into the heart of the action with BATTLEFIELD 4™ Commander – the exclusive companion app to your BATTLEFIELD 4™ experience. Deliver critical intelligence, deploy war assets, and manage squad-based team play all from the palm of your hand!


Take point and lead your team to victory wherever you are. Play on any platform server on which you own Battlefield 4™. Join games straight from the app, or through Battlelog.


You’ll have to rely on your teammates for success. Talk to your squad directly with full VOIP (on supported platforms).


Call in powerful UAVs to scan the area for enemy activity, or jam their radar using EMP. The intel you gather is crucial to ensure the victory of your team.


Send vehicles and supplies to squads on the ground and give them an edge over the enemy. The better your team works together, the better they’ll become.


Turn the tide of battle with devastating cruise missile attacks. Call in powerful gunships to circle strategic locations and help repel enemy forces.

    So now I have an iPhone, and the app, just not Battlefield 4 yet (-_-)

    • Wait. Do you mean iPad? I don’t think it will run on the iPhone :S

      • DerpSlayer

        David the type of people that buy crApple products just think everything is an iPhone.

        • Alpine

          let the hate flow through you…

        • AtheistMason

          How this gets upvoted lol y sum readers so dumb

      • I dont see how one can be an effective and and productive commander on a 3 inch screen.

        • Mech Fett

          I don’t see how people can game well on a 25+in screen but people do it. So I guess some people will be able to command well on their tablet too.

  • oofy

    (Looks at the picture above): Is that my Commander? She can command me any time she likes!

    …sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    • TheDerpPolice

      Maybe you should have

      • oofy

        But I couldn’t. So I didn’t.

  • Why couldn’t they just release the Android version at the same time?

    • Warlon

      Nexus 7 or 10?

      • Neither. Galaxy Note 10.1

        • plumokin

          with its shitty android skin? thats a definite no, wait for the new nexus 10 which will be announced at the end of this month

          • Umm. No? Plus my Note is running CM10.2 so I don’t have that shitty skin you speak of.

            • Mech Fett

              Nexus 7?


      Apple paid EA/Dice money for the app to be exclusive on their platform first i.e. Microsoft/Call of Duty.

      • AtheistMason

        Does Apple even give a crap about android

    • mus1CKFps

      as hard as it may sound to swallow its way easier to develop for apple idevices and before you call me an apple fanboy i own a Google nexus 5

      • But that’s not always the case. I’ve seen apps come out on Android before iOS.

      “Shit bucket not required”

      • falahcod

        We still got the toilet. XD

  • John Doe

    Playing on PS4 and I just have to say. Wow. Compared to current gen it makes it look like a bucket of shit. The PS4 even runs better and the animations actually work.

    On a side note for those worried about long installs do not be. It took my PS4 only 2-4 minutes to install 30GB for BF4. Impressive. Actually I did not even noticed it did install.

    • TheDerpPolice

      What does that have to do with this article about tablet Commander? Are you dumb?

      • John Doe

        It is a comment about Battlefield on a Battlefield article. YOU DUMB.

        • AtheistMason

          Yeah man it’s totally legit if I talk sum net code and shit here albeit being unrelated to commander but it’s battlefield, how dumb, you know nothing, John Doe

    • XFistsClenchedX

      It didn’t take 2-4 minutes to install 30GB. It took 2-4 minutes to caches enough of the game to allow you to start playing while it caches more in the background.

      • AtheistMason

        John Doe knows nothing, let it easy on him

    • 1. Irrelevant yo the post, which is about Commander mode app
      2. It does not take 2 minutes to install a 30 GB game as you don’t do a full install Any PC gamer will tell you that

  • Primordius

    are they ever going to release to the Win8 app store?

    • DerpSlayer

      LOL. Metro sucks donkey balls and looks like AOL 1996

      • XFistsClenchedX

        WP8 is a great, award-winning OS. The only problem with it is a lack of app support.

        • Primordius

          exactly what i think. Also i think they should at least come out with it, it cant be that hard to bring to another platform

          • XFistsClenchedX

            I agree, but I also think that most games will use Smartglass and Smartglass is on WP8 so most games will still work with WP8.

    • XFistsClenchedX

      No, they won’t.

  • Anybody, what is the high value target thing for? I can’t set it on any enemies, Vehix or objectives

  • XFistsClenchedX

    I want to know if this app will be available for phablets on Android as well. There is no reason this couldn’t run on a Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

  • andrew renner

    would it even be possible for dice to add the 3d map rendering? Or since the ipad version runs on its own engine would it not be possible. or even to add a live feed?

  • sssssseee gggooom

    yeah well Paintball extreme on Xbox 360 is way better than these dumb games

  • Toms

    Hi All,

    I brought Battlefield through PSN and I trying to connect to the commander mode from IPAD but when I login using Origin ID, it says I need to purchase battlefield.
